We recently expanded our API to assign passwords and keys for individual user accounts. What that means is that you can now make changes in your own account via our API without having to log in or even visit our site.
This comes in response to users who were interested in integrating our service with another program (TweetDeck for example).
To generate your own API key and see some example uses, log in to your account, click on the “Account” link and look for the API options.
We plan on expanding the API functionality very soon, so if you have any feature suggestions or feedback please let us know.
